Often it makes sense to hire an attorney to help you defend yourself against the bank in order to get the best possible outcome. The purpose of defending against a foreclosure is generally to buy you valuable time to assess all of your options, including personal bankruptcy, or even a short sale or deed-in-lieu, if retaining the home is not possible.
You need time to make these decisions. An experienced foreclosure defense lawyer, such as Mr. Cassar, will be able to slow the bank down and perhaps even stop the bank in some cases.
Hiring an attorney may be more affordable than you think. The fees for Mr. Cassar’s representation are ordinarily a fraction of what you would normally pay in a monthly mortgage payment.
